Fox has released a new teaser image that gives us our first look of Evan Peters as Quicksilver, son of Magneto with Young Xavier, Young Magneto and a transported Wolverine in what appears to be a wintery scene (at least I hope that’s snow).

While the image itself isn’t terribly exciting, it’s the first real indication that Quicksilver will be part of the early Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Combined with the recent casting news that Evan Jonigkeit will be playing a young Toad, and the already present Mystique played again by Jennifer Lawrence and whom is supposed to have a darker character arc this time, it’s exciting to see a Brotherhood that resembles the original comic brotherhood.

 

X-Men Apocalypse Updates

apocalypseElsewhere in X-Men movie news Bryan Singer has confirmed that the next film in the series will be titled X-Men Apocalypse. The mere mention of that word in relationship to any X-Men story tends to send ripples of excitement as it immediately brings to mind of the most sinister villains in X-Men history, and a character who typically involves epic storylines. If the movie does indeed involve Apocalypse, it will bring to life a character most fans thought would never be involved in the films. And the crew is already moving ahead with the project as Singer has brought in X2 writers  Mike Dougherty and Dan Harris to begin writing. He went on to tease “It’s snowing in Egypt!” a country that happens to be the birthplace of En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse. Singer is co-writing the film and at this point producing it while negotiating to direct it as well.
